Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a long stringy band of clouds that are a heavy mix of fluffys and whispys moving SE down the peninsula and the Sea of Cortez this morning. It is currently blanketing the sky from around San Filipe south to around Santa Rosalia. If it continues it’s current SE path it will soon be over Concepcion Bay. It looks like whispys will follow the heaviest bands that are crossing the Sea right now.
From Santa Rosalia south it looks like the skies are clear for the Sea of Cortez this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera the skies are currently clear, but off the coast, west of Manzanillo, there is an area of disturbed weather that has numerous showers embedded. In the animated mode I can see this large area slowly moving toward the coast. Will the showers dissipate before reaching landfall? It’s hard to tell but it might be prudent to keep and umbrella close by. We’ll see?
The Tehuantepec has quieted down to 20-25 knots this morning and less than 20 forecast for this afternoon. No new wind-events are on the nearby horizon.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Portland is the only place on the west coast that is still seeing any rain this morning from that cold front that came through yesterday.
The Sierras however are continuing to see light snow this morning and it should continue through the night into tomorrow. In the Lake Tahoe area they can expect 4-8 inches of new snow above 7000 feet and only 2-4 inches down at lake level.
The next chance for any rain along the west coast will be Sunday when another low and associated cold front is progged to arrive in California.
Looking now over to the southwest where big changes are now underway for SW Arizona as the first of several disturbances will pass through today ushering in a colder air mass along with clouds, mainly mountain showers and gusterly winds. Additional weak systems will continue to bring a slight threat of mountain showers into the weekend. A somewhat stronger system is progged to move across Arizona on Monday.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence, in general, most of the Sea will continue to see moderate SE winds today, then tomorrow the NW or NE could return, sort of depends on the speed of the lows moving through the Great Basin. Sunday the entire Sea should be back to our moderate NW or NE winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 10 SE today, 15 NE tomorrow, 13 NE on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: less than 10 today from the south and then around 15 from the NW for the weekend.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 17-20 from the SE for the 3-day forecast period. I noticed that this forecast is not consistent with the other models so don’t chisel this in stone. The winds velocities appears to be a bit high and I don’t think Concepcion Bay will see SE winds on Monday.
Puerto Escondido: 13-16 for the 3-day forecast period. Today from the SW, and the weekend NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Around 10 today from the SW. 5-6 tomorrow from the NE and then mid to high teens on Sunday from the NE.
The East Cape: around 10 for today and tomorrow from the NE. Sunday around 19 from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan light SW today, Light NW tomorrow and around 20 from the NW on Sunday.
The Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan: Light SW today then 14-17 from the NW over the weekend.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
South of Cabo Corrienties: mostly light SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much clear this morning but that may change this afternoon as a cold front moves through California this afternoon the northern Sea could see some cloudiness.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see that there are no clouds along the coast to almost South America.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec GALE warnings remain posted for today. The winds are expected to decrease below GALE force this evening and to be less than 20 knots by tomorrow afternoon.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where from Seattle to central California they are seeing rain, mostly light, this morning. The accompanying cold front could bring some much needed snow to the Sierras today. The system is a fast mover and will exit to the east by tomorrow morning. Next Sunday another system is progged to move through California.
Several rather weak systems are progged to moving in from the Pacific this weekend then High pressure is forecast to rebuild over the Eastern Pacific by early next week. The only silver lining is that this ridge is not expected to be as strong as the big ridge that was off the west coast most of January. As a result there is hope for a more normal weather pattern for California for February instead to a drought pattern.
Looking now over to the southwest where the entire state is overcast this morning. Even so they will see near record highs today. Tomorrow as that cold front moving through the region it will cool thing off and bring a few mountain showers that could start as early as this evening and last into the weekend. It will also be a bit gusterly in the desert southwest today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow the Sea will be seeing light to moderate southerlies then swing to the NE on Saturday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 17 SE today. 7 SE tomorrow. 11 NE on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 16 SE today, 6 SE tomorrow. 16 NW on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 18 SE today. 12 NE or SE tomorrow. 17 NE on Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: 13 SE today. 13 SW tomorrow and 14 NE on Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby
islands. Less than 10 today from the SE. 10-12 tomorrow from the SW and 7 on Saturday from the NW.
The East Cape: around 10 knots for the 3-day forecast period. Today and tomorrow NE, Saturday NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan 12-14 for the 3-day forecast period. Today and tomorrow NE, Saturday SE.
Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan: 13 knot southerlies today and tomorrow and 15 from the NW on Saturday.
Puerto Vallarta: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light southerlies today and light NW for the next two days.
South of the cape: mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez is pretty much clear of any clouds.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera this image is showing it clear to around Manzanillo where there a weak moisture plume has been sending what look like mostly whispys from there to around Zihuatanejo overnight. It looks like that will continue today.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec a cold front moving through the Gulf of Mexico has created a tight pressure gradient across the isthmus and will be funneling GALE force winds through the Chivela pass into the Gulf starting later this afternoon and continuing to tomorrow night before dipping to just below GALE force tomorrow night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where this image is showing a wet moisture plume stretching from just south of Hawaii to the Washington/Oregon coast bringing rain, locally heavy to the Seattle area this morning and unsettled weather at least through Friday morning. It will also bring a wintery mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow to the Cascades.
Portland is also experiencing light rain this morning.
In northern California most of the rain has been to the north however will start to spread slowly south this afternoon bringing a chance of rain to the bay area, the upper Sacramento valley and the foothills this afternoon. A chance of light showers will continue into tomorrow.
The long range models now agree that the high pressure ridge off the west coast will rebuild off the west coast early next week bringing a return of the warm and dry weather to northern California.
In southern California it will continue to be warm today and cooler tomorrow with a chance of light rain tomorrow night and another chance of light rain Sunday night and early Monday as a couple of low systems pass through.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions and a warming trend will continue through tomorrow. A slight chance of mainly mountain showers will begin tomorrow night and continue through the weekend. They can expect a return to near normal temperatures on Sunday with cooler temperatures thereafter.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sea of Cortez will see moderate NW today then a couple of days of light to moderate southerlies.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 17 NW today, 17 SW tomorrow and around 10 from the SW on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20 NW today, 17 SE tomorrow and 10 SE on Friday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 19 NW today, 18 SE tomorrow and around 15 from the SE on Friday.
Puerto Escondido: 16 NE today. 14 SE tomorrow and 12 SE on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 13 NE today, very light tomorrow from the SE and around 10 on Friday from the SW.
La Paz: 16 NW today, less than 10 tomorrow from the NE and light winds again on Friday from the SW.
East Cape: 18 today from the NW then around 10 from the NE for the next two days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning the most significant feature in this image is a moisture plume stretching from Hawaii to Oregon and Washington this morning. I’ll discuss that in a few minutes.
Meantime looking at the Sea of Cortez I can see the moisture plume that moved up from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough yesterday and moved east over the Sea of Cortez and brought cloudy conditions and light rain to many locations yesterday has passed to the east and is now over the mainland.
In general the skies are now clear over the Sea of Cortez this morning and it looks like we should have clear skies for at least the next 24 hours.
Looking south of the cape and the west coast of Mexico I can see another tropical moisture plume has moved off the zone with the main body about 1000 miles west of Cabo Corrienties this morning. There has been several rather wet bands break off the main plume and move toward the coast. There is currently a wet band moving through the Mazatlan area and smaller bands in the Puerto Vallarta region. As these heavy wet bands move through this morning it looks like there are mostly whispys behind them.
From Cabo Corrienties south the skies are mostly clear of the rest of the west coast.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec where for most the day today the winds will be light. This evening the winds will pick up and by tomorrow morning they should start to see GALE force winds that should persist until Wednesday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where as I mentioned there is a long moisture plume that stretches from Hawaii to Oregon this morning. The forecasters have not gone so far to call this an atmospheric river, but it is carrying a lot of moisture that will bring rain first to Oregon and Washington today then the plume is forecast of move south into northern California tomorrow bringing mostly light rain for the day perhaps only a ¼ - ½ inch of rain to the north state.
Another system is progged to move through on Sunday but the prospects of any rain from this system look bleak right now. Long range models continue to hint at the high weakening or breaking down between the 6th and 11th of February.
Meantime as soon as the current system passed through the north state it will remain unseasonably warm and dry.
In southern California warm and dry with a chance of some light rain this upcoming weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where their weather will come from systems moving through Washington and dropping down in the Great Basin. It should remain dry through Thursday then4 a string of disturbances to the north will influence their weather into this weekend. Rain? Perhaps.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern and central see will see ballpark 20 knot NW winds and then on Thursday light to moderate southerlies.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 19 today and tomorrow from the NW and around 16 from the SE on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 21 today and tomorrow from the NW and on Thursday 10 from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 19-20 today and tomorrow from the NW and around 16 knot southerlies on Thursday.
Puerto Escondido: 15-17 from the NE today and tomorrow and around 13 from the SE on Thursday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Mid teens today and tomorrow and less then 10 from the SE on Thursday.
La Paz: 15-17 today and tomorrow from the NW and less than 10 on Thursday from the SE.
The East Cape: 15-17 today and tomorrow from the NW and less than 10 from the NE on Thursday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan 19-20 from the NW for today and tomorrow and around 12 knot SW on Thursday.
Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan: around 18 today NW. 11 tomorrow from the NW and on Thursday around 12 knots from the SE.
Puerto Vallarta: light to moderate mostly NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: around 16 today from the NE. less than 10 tomorrow from the NW and less than 10 on Thursday from the SE
South of Cabo Corrienties: light SE or SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the tropical moisture plume that was about 800 miles off the west coast of the Baja peninsula yesterday morning started drifting over the peninsula late yesterday afternoon and this morning from around San Francisquito bay south to the just north of La Paz there is heavy overcast. Within the plume there are several hot spots that will most likely produce sprinkles or even light showers from Concepcion Bay to the cape this morning. The plume extends east to well into Sonora and Chihuahua this morning.
The plume is rather narrow so I’d expect that by this afternoon we should start to see some sunshine.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can’t see any clouds along the coast at all this morning.
Nothing going on in the Tehuantepec this morning and no wind-events are on the horizon for the Gulf.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where around mid week a system is forecast of move through the high off the west coast and bring some much needed rain to northern California.
The models are still struggling with the question of whether this midweek system will herald a longer-lasting pattern change away from the persistent dry pattern that California has seen for most of this winter. The optimistic models are saying this system could open the door for continued unsettled weather and the pessimistic models are just that, pessimistic about the high breaking down. So we wait and see.
In southern California the front moving through to the north will cool the temperatures down a few degrees as it passes, then back to above normal temperatures this weekend.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions with above average daytime temperatures will prevail through Thursday. Thereafter there is a slight chance of mainly mountain showers late Friday into the weekend from a system moving down from the NW through the Great Basin
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the northern Sea will see light to moderate winds today, the central Sea light NW winds and the cape region the high teens today.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW
The northern Sea: around 14 from the NW today, 20 tomorrow and around 15 on Wednesday from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 10 today, 21 tomorrow and 18 on Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Around 15 today from the NW, 11-14 from the NE for the next two days.
La Paz: 17-18 today and tomorrow mostly from the NW and Wednesday around 13 from the NE.
The East Cape: NW for the 3-day forecast period. Today 22, tomorrow 19 and Wednesday 14.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan to the half way point 17-21 for the next 3 days and the second half mid teens all from the NW.
The Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan today 16 NW, tomorrow 10 SW and Wednesday 10 NW.
From Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties light today and Wednesday from the NW, but tomorrow around 16 from the NE.
South of Cabo Corrienties less than 10 from mostly the SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that another large tropical moisture plume has moved up from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and the main plume is now about 800 miles off the west cape. Some of the spurs are already starting to pass over the cape area. I can see considerable shower activity within the plume. This plume is relatively a long ways away, and normally this winter most of this moisture has dried up by the time it reaches land, but with the heavy moisture content in this plume we could see some sprinkles. I’d guess that tonight we should start to see this plume start to provide some cloudiness to the central Sea south. We’ll see?
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where there is not a cloud along the coast to well into Central America this morning.
Looking at the Tehuantepec this morning where for the last two week they have had strong winds in the GALE and STORM force ranges almost every day. This morning the northerly winds are in the 20-30 knot ranges and will decrease to 20 knots or less by this evening. No Tehuantepeckers are in the forecast for the next 72 hours.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Seattle may see some rain Wednesday through Saturday, but the rest of the west coast will continue to be unseasonably warm and dry due to the high pressure ridge parked off the west coast.
Confidence is gradually growing that a Pacific weather system may finally break through the ridge and bring some much-needed rain to northern California probably late Thursday and midday Friday. The models are showing that this will NOT be a gully-washer, but more likely some light high elevation snow and light rain in the valleys .
Southern California continues to be warm and dry and not expected to see any rain or mountain snow from the system that will move though northern California later this week.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions and above average daytime temperatures will prevail through Thursday. There is a slight chance of some mountain snow showers Friday and Saturday for a cold low that will drop down from the north. It there is any rain it will most likely be right along the Fence.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the Sea will be seeing moderate NW winds today and then tomorrow light NW winds.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today, tomorrow moderate NE and Friday moderate NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20 NW today, light tomorrow and around 19 NW on Tuesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: mid teens today from the NW. light tomorrow and mid teens again on Tuesday from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Mid teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: 18 NW today, 23 tomorrow NE, and on Tuesday 17 from the NW.
East Cape: 19-25 for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan strong winds today around 20, 29 tomorrow from the NW and around 20 again on Tuesday.
Mexican Riviera, Mazatlan today, 16NW, tomorrow 19 NW and 15 on Tuesday from the SE.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: light NW winds today and tomorrow and around 15 on Tuesday from the NE.
South of Cabo Corrienties: light WSW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the tropical moisture plume that has been off our coast for the past 2 days has now passed to the NE. In general the skies over the Sea of Cortez look to be clear this morning.
The cape region is also clearing this morning.
Off shore the west coast of Mexico there is another tropical moisture plume that is drifting toward the Mexican Riviera. These look like mostly whispys and the pattern is scattered and broken so when these clouds do arrive on the coast some time today there will be a good mix of sunshine.
Looking now at the Gulf of Tehuantepec the STORM force winds will decrease slightly to GALE force by later this morning through tomorrow morning then diminish to 20-30 by Sunday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the long range models are now hinting at the high breaking down or at least weakening some time next week. Otherwise the unseasonably warm and dry conditions will continue for the entire west coast.
In Southern California the Santa Ana winds are keeping gusterly conditions in the southland. The only good news for is for the surfer dudes and dudettes. Surfs up!
Looking over the southwest where that tropical moisture plume is still over the region bringing a good chance of some morning sprinkles or light showers to the Tucson area. These clouds should clear from west to east by this afternoon.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence in general the northern and central Sea will see ballpark 20k winds over the weekend and moderate winds on Monday. The southern Sea mostly moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 16-19 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 24 today, 20 tomorrow and 16 on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 23-24 over the weekend and around 13 on Monday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. The mid teens from the NW for the next 3 days.
La Paz: light NE today, around 13 tomorrow and light again on Monday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: 21-23 for the entire stretch of the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan: 20-23 for the next 3 days.
Puerto Vallarta and Cabo Corrienties: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
South of Cabo Corrienties: light, less than 10 for the next 3 days.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the tropical moisture plume off the west coast continues to send a heavy mix of fluffys and whispys over the Sea of Cortez this morning.
The plume extends from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough to as far north as Bakersfield, Las Vegas, and blanketing Arizona to as far north as Flagstaff this am.
So it looks like today will NOT be a great day for solar generation in the Sea of Cortez, but it did give us one of those incredible Baja sunrises this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see some what looks like mostly whispys approaching the Mazatlan area this morning. Puerto Vallarta and south look to be mostly cloud free with the exception of some high whispys arriving later in the day.
Looking now at the Gulf to Tehuantepec where currently the winds are in the light to moderate levels. Another cold front will move through the Gulf of Mexico later this morning bringing strong winds whistling through the Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec giving cause to GALE force winds through Sunday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a rather weak low has ridden over the top of the Pacific high and dropped like a crest of a wave into the Sacramento Valley, near Sacramento overnight. This image is showing some isolated light showers over the Sierras but that will be it for this dry system.
This low is progged to retrograde toward the west coast by late tomorrow and then move north along the west coast over the weekend bringing just some cloudiness with it.
It still looks like the west coast will remain dry until at least the end of the month. Long range models are starting to show some indications that early next month the west coast could see some rain. Big question marks still there though.
In southern California above normal temperatures continue along with gusterly winds especially in the mountains and foothills.
Looking now over to a cloudy southwest this morning where it’s possible that they could see some light rain or sprinkles from this tropical moisture plume that blankets most of this state this morning. It will also be gusterly today as the surface pressure gradient continues to tighten this morning. The gradient is progged to relax somewhat by tomorrow.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the northern Sea will see ballpark 20+ knot winds today then moderate winds over the weekend.
The central Sea from around San Francisquito bay will see strong winds in the 23-25 knot ranges for the 3-day forecast period and the southern Sea a bit less.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 19 NW today, 13 NW tomorrow, and 13 NE on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 22-25 NW for the next 3 days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 21-25 NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. The mid teens from the NW for the next 3 days.
La Paz: 22 NW today, 20 NW tomorrow, and 18 from the NW on Sunday.
East Cape: 20-23 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to almost Mazatlan: 20-23 for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: mid teens today and tomorrow and around 19 on Sunday all from the NW.
The Puerto Vallarta area: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: Light today and tomorrow from the NW and around 15 NW on Sunday.
South of Cabo Corrienties: Mostly light SW for today and the weekend.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that off the Baja west coast there continues to be a large moisture plume that originated in the ITCZ/Monsoon trough and moved north. It is still being fed by a very active ITCZ/Monsoon trough around 120W.
This plume started moving ashore early yesterday afternoon and by late afternoon the central Sea had some dark bottomed fluffys blocking out most of the sun. During the night these heavy fluffys have continued to pass over the central Sea and toward the morning hours the cape region.
It looks to me that this pattern will continue all day with a broken mix of mostly fluffys.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico the skies are clear however off shore several bands of clouds have broken off the main plume and will most likely pass over the Puerto Vallarta to Manzanillo area later today. The rest of the Riviera will probably be cloud free.
Looking now south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where the GALE warnings will be briefly taken down this afternoon before being posted again tomorrow morning due to strong high pressure building behind a fast moving cold front in the Gulf of Mexico. The event should last into Sunday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where according to the climate prediction centers 8-14 day outlook (valid from January 30th through February 5th) California will continue to see above normal temperatures as well as below normal precipitation. This is not good news considering the current drought in California.
The only item of interest in southern California is, "surfs up"!
Looking over to the southwest where I can see the southeast corner of the state is cloudy. For the rest of Arizona high whispys have passed to the east over night and the skies around Tucson look to be clear. It will be a bit gusterly today and tomorrow as high pressure rebuilds over the Great Basin. Just minor changes in the temperatures into next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today will be the last day in perhaps the next 10 days that will see light winds and they will be from the south today.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: around 14 today from the SE, then around 20 for Friday and Saturday from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 11 today SE, 22 tomorrow from the NW and 24 from the NW on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 17 today from the SE. Then around 24 into the weekend from the NW.
Just a bit less in the Puerto Escondido area.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light SE today then around 15 from the NW on Friday and Saturday.
La Paz: light SE today, then 18-20 on Friday and Saturday.
East Cape: light SE today, around 17 tomorrow from the NW and Saturday 21 from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way: 13 from the SW today and 19-21 from the NW for the next two. The second half light SW today and moderate NW for Friday and Saturday.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 17 SE, tomorrow 12 NW, and Saturday 19 NW.
Puerto Vallarta: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light SW today and tomorrow and light NW on Saturday.
South of the cape light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning it looks like that large moisture plume has passed to the east during the night and in general the skies look clear this morning over the Sea of Cortez. Within that plume there were some dark bottomed clouds that produced some light sprinkles in several locations yesterday afternoon.
Later today it looks like we will start to see some whispys from another large plume that has moved up from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. It is well off the west coast and in this image I can see a lot of shower activity as well as some thunderbumpers working within the plume.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where the coast is clear all the way south into Central America.
In the Gulf to Tehuantepec this morning there is a U.S. Navy research vessel Atlantis making a crossing this morning. It is reporting STORM force winds to 50 knots. These strong winds are forecast to last several more hours before dropping to GALE force by this afternoon and then rapidly diminish to 20-30 knots during the night tonight and become 20 or less in 24 hours. No sooner that this wind event ends another is forecast to crank up on Friday into Saturday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where nothing has changed on the west coast over the past 24 hours and it does not look like anything will change for the rest of this month. High pressure off the west coast is blocking any storms or would be rain makers from coming ashore.
I read an interesting forecast from a National Weather Service forecaster in the bay area this morning. In part it read,…”Several models and runs continue to attempt to indicate a break down of that ridge and allow for the jet stream to dip southward bringing better chances for much needed precipitation. However they again continue to “kick the can down the road” with exactly when that pattern change might occur.”
Well, I’m thinking that “kick the can down the road” could be the new buzz word referring to the forecasts coming out of these computer runs.
You certainly have to admit that it’s not a meteorological term that you often hear. If fact I believe this is the first time I’ve heard of a computer kicking the can down the road. It sort of gives it a personality.
I digress!
Taking a quick look over to the southwest where they will have gusterly east winds at times especially Friday. Otherwise dry conditions with above average daytime highs into next week.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side to the Fence it looks like today will see light to moderate NW winds. Tomorrow light to moderate SE winds and Friday t strong NW winds to around 20 will return.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today and tomorrow and around 17 from the NW on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 18 today NW, less than 10 tomorrow from the SE and then on Friday around 21 from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 17 today and tomorrow from the NE and around 22 on Friday from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: light NE today. Around 15 tomorrow from the SE and then on Friday 19 from the NE again.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE today and tomorrow and on Friday 14-16 from the NW.
The East Cape: 16 today NW, 10 tomorrow NE and 17 on Friday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way: 18 today NW, 10 tomorrow SW, and 19 on Friday from the NW. The second half 15 today NW, 18 tomorrow SW and strong NW winds to around 20 on Friday from the NW.
The Mexican Riviera: In Mazatlan today 14 knot winds from the west, tomorrow 20 knot SE and Friday 12 knot NW.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: less than 10 for the next 3 days. Today NW, tomorrow SW and Friday NW again.
South of Cabo Corrienties: the light winds will have a southern flavor for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that moisture plume that originated on the ITCZ/Monsoon trough has now detached itself from the zone and is now spread out, off shore, from the cape to San Diego. It looks like we will be seeing a bit more of this plume than yesterday. So we should see a good mix of fluffys and whispys pass over the peninsula today.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where I can see some whispys in the southern crossing and a few other high clouds along the coast, but in general the coast is clear and sunshine is the order of the day.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the last wind event pretty much ended late yesterday and currently the Gulf has ballpark 20 knot winds or less. This won’t last long: By this afternoon winds will pick up to GALE force again and rapidly increase to 40-45 knots by this evening and briefly reach STORM force early tomorrow then start to diminish and drop below GALE force by tomorrow nigh and continue to diminish through Thursday night. Seas will reach 20 feet by this evening. No sooner than this Tehuantepec winds down another is progged crank up on Friday morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the drought continues in California and the models are showing no rain through the end of this month due to the ridge of high pressure parked off the west coast.
This week there will be a shortwave that will ride up and over the ridge and then like a breaking wave drop straight southward into Nevada. As this happens a strong offshore surface gradient will set up over the Sierras toward the coast, giving cause to a healthy wind event for the coast, inland valleys and the foothills of northern California. Temperatures will fluctuate dramatically from wind sheltered area.
That Nevada low would normally move off the east but a cold air mass from the north will block it for a few days. Meantime the winds will continue in the north state. Fire danger concerns will be elevated as humidity values continue to be very dry and fuels remain at record dry mid-winter levels.
IN southern California it will remain warm and very dry through Wednesday. Moderate Santa Ana winds continue. Bad news: No rain in the forecast. Good News: Surf’s up!
Looking over to the southwest where this image is showing some whispys over the region and some cloudiness moving into the Tucson area from north-central Mexico, Chihuahua. It will probably be full overcast by this afternoon. Dry conditions with above average daytime temperatures will prevail into the weekend. It should be a bit gusterly this morning and again on Friday.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the moisture plume moving off the ITCZ/Monsoon trough has a lot of shower activity within the plume as it moves north off the zone. By the time it reached the Baja latitudes most (but not all) of the moisture is gone and what the Sea of Cortez will continue to see are mostly high whispys as the west/east flow in the basin move the plume over the peninsula and Sea today.
Looking now south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where down in these latitudes I can see numerous thunderbumpers working within the plume. None look like that want to come ashore and it looks like perhaps a few whispys will pass over the southern crossing and the Mazatlan area today.
The rest of the west coast of Mexico should be pretty much cloud free today.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec there is one Tehuantepecker winding down and another one getting ready to crank up.
The current GALE force winds are expected to diminish to just below GALE force later this morning then tomorrow afternoon another wind event is expect to rapidly build to STORM force by tomorrow evening then drop back down to GALE force for the next 24 hours.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest could get a little rain on Wednesday but otherwise dry inland and foggy along the coast.
Northern California is currently dry with low humidity and the last thing it needs is a strong wind event, and that looks like what will happen about mid week. This will significantly increase the fire danger in the north state.
In southern California the Santa Ana wind event continues with high pressure in the Nevada plateau and a bar reading of around 1018 in the southland. It continues to be unseasonably warm in southern California.
Looking now over to the southwest where it will remain dry with cool mornings and above average temperatures in the afternoon that are expected to last throughout the week. They could see some high cloudiness mid week as a weak system passing across Sonora.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the entire Sea will be seeing what I’ll call brisk NW winds in the 18-20 knot ranges.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. NW today and tomorrow and most likely NE on Wednesday.
The northern Sea: 17 today, 20 tomorrow and around 13 on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20-23 for the next 3 days from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 18 today, 20 tomorrow and 19 on Wednesday, all from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: NE for the 3-day forecast period. 14 today, 19 tomorrow and 16 on Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: 14 today. 18 tomorrow and 10 on Wednesday from the NE.
The East Cape: 17 today, 21 tomorrow and 13 from the NE on Wednesday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: 18-20 from the NW for the entire passage for the next 3 days.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 15 today from the NW, 18 tomorrow NW, then 13 from the west on Wednesday.
The Puerto Vallarta area to Cabo Corrienties: 11-15 for the 3-day forecast period from the NW.
South of Cabo Corrienties: mostly light SW winds for the next 3 days.

Looking first this morning to the south and the ITCZ/Monsoon trough. There is an area of thunderbumper activity between 110-120 this is producing a lot of clouds that are moving off the zone and heading north. The plume extends from the ITCZ/Monsoon trough to almost San Diego. Ragged, scattered bands of clouds can be seen breaking off the main plume and passing over the Baja peninsula this morning. Most appear to be high clouds so it looks like today the entire Baja peninsula will be see some cloud cover that will most likely be whispys. We’ll see?
Looking now over to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera where they may see some of these clouds later today but this image is showing most are still well off shore.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec GALE warnings are still up and it looks like this wind event will last until tomorrow morning and diminish below GALE force by tomorrow afternoon.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast is keeping the west coast dry and unseasonably warm. The weather talk is all about how long the drought will last and how bad the fire season will be this year. California’s governor has issued a state of emergency for the state and asked residents to reduce water consumption by at least 20%. California’s snow pack are down 80% from normal.
High pressure is also strong over the Great Basin giving cause to Santa Ana winds in southern California and elevating the fire danger in southern California. Santa Ana winds fanned a campfire into a wildfire that destroyed five homes and threatened foothill neighborhoods east of Los Angeles. That fire is now mostly contained
Looking over to the southwest where strong high pressure will remain situated over the western conus for the majority of the week. This will lead to dry weather and much above normal temperatures for the region. Periodic high clouds and a slight cooling trend will be the only weather concerns through the latter half of the week.
This image is showing that moisture plume off the Baja coast is also sending some clouds along the Fence this morning. So looking south from the Tucson area they should be seeing some cloudiness today.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence this Sunday looks like light winds for the entire Sea of Cortez, with the winds Monday picking up to the mid teens and Tuesday to around 20.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 12 today, 17 tomorrow and around 20 on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 13 today, 21 tomorrow and 23 on Tuesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: pretty much the same thing, 13 today 20 tomorrow and 23 on Tuesday.
Puerto Escondido: NE for the 3-day forecast period. Today 12, tomorrow 15 and Tuesday 18.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 9-12 from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: 12 NE today, 14 NW tomorrow, and 17 NW on Tuesday.
The East Cape: 15 NW today, 17 NW tomorrow and then around 20 on Tuesday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan: Around 15 today from the NW, then 18-20 for the next two day for the entire stretch.
Mexican Riviera: in general light winds for the entire Mexican Riviera for the 3-day forecast period. North of Cabo Corrienties mostly NW and south of the cape mostly SW.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that off the west coast of Baja and the west coast of Mexico there is a broad area of mostly light showers. Clouds from this area are drifting with the west/east flow in the basin toward Baja and the west coast of Mexico.
It looks like later this morning the southern Baja peninsula will start to see some high whispys pass over with little effect on any solar generation.
To the south the main body is further away so perhaps later this afternoon the Puerto Vallarta area could start to see some high cloudiness.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the gradient across southern Mexico continues to support strong winds funneling through the Chivela pass bringing 30-40 knot winds in the Gulf. These GALE conditions are expected to last through Monday morning.
Well, that’s what is gong on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America the remains of weakening front could bring a little rain to the coast of NW Washington today and tonight. Otherwise the Great Northwest is progged to remain dry for most of next week.
In California no one is talking rain. The talk is about drought and pending fire danger. Santa Ana winds fanned a wild fire in southern California that caused the evacuation of several thousand homes. It is mostly contained by now with no loss of any homes. Red flag warnings, signifying extreme fire danger continue to stay in effect the LA basin.
The Santa Ana winds are weakening this morning but weak offshore flow and very dry air will continue over southern California through next week with cool night and warm days.
Looking now over to the southwest where strong high pressure will remain over the western conus at least through the middle of next week. This will lead to much above normal temperatures with the possibility of some slight cooling at the end of next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds in the Sea of Cortez will be pleasant this weekend and pick up a bit on Monday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 14-17 for the 3-day forecast period.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 19 today, 15 tomorrow and around 21 on Monday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 17 today, 15 tomorrow and 19 on Monday.
Puerto Escondido: 13-15 from the NE for the next 3 days.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 10-12 from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: 12-15 from mostly the NW for the next three days.
East Cape: 15-17 from the NW for the next 3 days.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan 15-18 for the first half for the next 3 days and very moderate winds for the second half for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 15 today NW, 9 tomorrow NW and 15 on Monday from the NW.
The Puerto Vallarta area: light NW for the next 3 days.
Cabo Corrienties: light SW today then light NW for the next 2.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez remains cloud free.
To the south along the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera there has been some whispys passing over the Manzanillo and Zihuatanejo area during the night but it looks like they could see a few more but sunshine should be the order of the day for the entire west coast of Mexico.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the current Tehuantepecker is still brewing with the GALE force winds expected to last until Sunday morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the models are showing the high off the west coast will be keeping the west coast dry for the foreseeable future.
High pressure in the 1030 ranges over the Nevada plateau of the Great Basin and around 1019 in southern California is keeping the Santa Ana wind event bringing warm gusterly winds into the southland today. These strong winds are forecast to decease by this evening.
Temperature-wise all of California is experiencing above normal daytime highs. San Francisco will hit 71 degrees today. San Diego 81.
Looking now over to the southwest where Tucson will see around 73 this afternoon. Warm and dry are forecast well into next week.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today should be the last day of this wind event. The weekend and Monday look like the moderate northerlies will be in the Sea of Cortez.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 19 today, 17 tomorrow and 13 on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 20 today, 18 tomorrow and 15 on Sunday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 21 today 18 tomorrow and 15 on Sunday afternoon.
Puerto Escondido: NE for the 3-day forecast period. 17 today, 14 tomorrow and 13 on Sunday
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 11-13 from the NW for the next three days.
La Paz: 16 today NW then 13-14 from the NE for the weekend.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way: mid teens today and Sunday and tomorrow around 20. For the second half moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today around 9 from the NE, tomorrow 15NW and Sunday 10 from the NW.
Puerto Vallarta area: mostly light NE or NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light southerlies tomorrow otherwise light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
South of the cape mostly light to moderate SW winds for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a few whispys passing over the northern Baja peninsula from around Puerto Escondido south this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico and the Mexican Riviera I can see some mostly high whispys passing over the entire Mexican Riviera this morning. It looks like it will be a hazy day for the Mexican Riviera today.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where GALE force winds have increased to STORM force and seas have built to as high as 24 feet 150 miles downstream from the Gulf.
Wind will diminish below STORM force by later this morning however the GALE force winds will continue through Sunday morning.
A very large area of north to northeast swell is being generated by this wind event and will spread south and southwest beyond 800 miles from the Tehuantepec by late tonight and reach portions of the Galapagos island chain as moderate NNW swell by Friday morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where from the Sierra Nevada range west the west coast is clear of any clouds.
Things still look bleak for California to see any rain this month. The models are showing the blocking high parked off the west coast just sitting there with no indications that it will move in the foreseeable future.
The forecast is for the above normal temperatures to continue at least until the end of the month for California. LA will see a high today of 81, San Diego 80 and San Francisco and the upper Sacramento valley around 70 today.
Looking over to the southwest where high pressure over the western conus will keep the region dry with seasonable cool mornings and above average daytime highs into next week. Sunrise in Tucson was around 40 and it will warm up to around 73 this afternoon.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like 20 knot winds today diminishing tomorrow and a bit more and Saturday with what looks like a very pleasant weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 22 today, 19 tomorrow and 14 on Saturday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 24 today, 20 tomorrow and 17 on Saturday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 26 today, 21 tomorrow and 16 on Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: 21NE today, 17NE tomorrow, and 12NE on Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 12-15 from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: 17-18 today and tomorrow from the NW and around 14 on Saturday from the NW.
The East Cape: 18-19 from the NW for the today and tomorrow and then around 16 on Saturday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way:
20-24 today, light winds tomorrow and around 19 on Saturday. The second half mostly light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan 10 today from the SE. Tomorrow 10NE and Saturday 10NW.
Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: light southerlies today, light NE or NW tomorrow and Saturday.
South of the cape light to moderate SW winds for the next three days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the skies are clear over the Sea of Cortez as well as the west coast of Mexico this morning.
There is however a moisture plume that is slipping under the high pressure off the west coast of Baja. The leading edge is around the Socorro islands and I’d expect the body of the plume to continue moving east and the current path would suggest it arriving on the coast around Manzanillo sometime in the next 24 hours. We’ll see?
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec where cool dense air in the wake of a cold front over the Gulf of Mexico is whistling through the Chivela pass across the Gulf and Tehuantepec and then continuing in a narrow plume southwestward downstream from the Gulf to around 250 miles SW of the Gulf. The GALE force winds are expected to increase to STORM force by this evening through Thursday morning and diminishing to be below STORM force by Thursday evening with GALE force winds expected to continue though Saturday morning.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where it looks like the entire west coast including the Great Northwest will be dry for at least the end of the week.
The latest model runs have the high pressure parked off the west coast through the end of the month, at least. Meaning no rain or snow to fill California’s reservoirs.
In southern California a Santa Ana wind event has high wind advisories posted until noon today. 35-45 mph winds are expected in the LA basin.
Not quite so windy in San Diego area today. It will continue to be warm and dry with today’s high around 80 this afternoon.
Looking now over to the southwest where it looks like the skies are clear and it will remain dry with seasonably cool mornings and above average daytime temperatures well into next week. With no rain, strong winds and humidity reading in the mid teens fire danger looms large over the SW.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like the winds will be diminishing somewhat each day for the next 3 days with high 20s today, mid 20s tomorrow and low 20s on Friday.
Long range this weekend looks like the wind gods will smile on the Annual Art show here in El Burro Cove.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. The predominate winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 24 today, 22 tomorrow and 18 on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 22 today, 24 tomorrow and around 20 on Friday
.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 25-26 today and tomorrow and around 21 on Friday. A bit less at Puerto Escondido.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands the winds will be from the NE. 17 today, then 14-15 for the next 2 days.
La Paz: 17-19 from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
East Cape: 17-18 knot NW for the next 3 days.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way: 17-19 NW for the 3-day forecast period with light to moderate NW for the second half for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 12NE, tomorrow 14SE and on Friday around 10 from the NE.
Puerto Vallarta area: less than 10 for the next 3 days. Today NE, tomorrow SE and on Friday NE again.
Cabo Corrienties: very light winds for the next 3 days from the south tomorrow NW today and Friday.
South of the cape mostly light SW for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Sea of Cortez as well as the entire stretch of the west coast of Mexico is cloud free this morning.
However in the Gulf to Tehuantepec attention remains focused on the next wind event in the Gulf expected to start his morning and last for several days. This event will quickly start with GALE force winds and increase to STORM force by tomorrow morning and finally dip below GALE force Thursday evening before cranking back up again on Friday into Saturday.
This Tehuantepecker will drive seas downstream from the Gulf as high as 23 feet out to 12N98W by Wednesday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where with the exception of some light rain in the Seattle area this morning the Great Northwest will remain dry until the end of the week.
In northern California for anyone hoping for any rainfall, unfortunately there is nothing encouraging to report, even looking out to the end of the month. Strong high pressure in the 1040 ranges parked off the west coast is keeping all weather systems skirting around it to the north.
Unless there is a huge change in the pattern that the models are not picking up on California is on track to have the driest January on record for virtually all locations.
In southern California the gradient between the Nevada plateau and southern California has set up a Santa Ana wind event with the strongest winds in the LA basin and just breezy conditions in the San Diego area.
San Diego will be warm up to around 70 degrees this afternoon.
Looking over to the southwest where there is a high wind advisory for Needles, Lake Havasu and the lower Colorado River Valley with gusts to 40-50 peaking later this morning and afternoon hours and diminishing early his evening.
The Tucson area will continue to have seasonably cool mornings and afternoon temperatures around 70 for the rest of the week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the Sea of Cortez will be lumpy for the next 3 days. 30+ knots today in the central Sea diminishing to around 24 on Thursday.
Long range it continues to look like the wind gods will again smile on the 10th Annual Art show at El Burro cove this Sunday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. In general the wind direction will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 28 today, 26 tomorrow and 20 on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 31 today and around 23 for the next two days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 32 today, 27 tomorrow and 24 on Thursday. A tad less at Puerto Escondido.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands.
20 today, 17 tomorrow and 14 on Thursday.
La Paz: 27 today, around 19 knots for Wednesday and Thursday.
The East Cape: around 26 today, and 18 for the next 2 days.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan half way: 25 today from the SW then around 18 from the NW for the next 2. The second half light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 16NW. Tomorrow 10NE and Thursday 14SE.
The Puerto Vallarta area: mostly light NW wind for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: low teens today from the NW the light SW for the next two.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the Sea of Cortez is cloud free this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico the coast is also clear there.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec they can expect GALE force winds to begin this afternoon and persist through early tomorrow when the winds will pick up to STORM force velocities with 45-50 knot winds expected Wednesday afternoon and night. Seas will build to 18-22 feet Wednesday. This Tehuantepecker will last until late Thursday night into Friday. With only a slight break another wind event is progged for late Friday into Saturday.
Downstream from the Gulf a very large plume of NE swell will spread SW raising seas to 8 feet and greater as far SW 10N105W by Wednesday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where today should see the last of the rain for the week in the Great Northwest. Dry condition are forecast from Tuesday through the end of the week when another wet system is progged to arrive.
In northern California things looks so dry that the 16 day GFS forecast shows virtually no rainfall for the entire period for all of California. Instead of taking about Pacific storms and hydro issues, the last full week of January will feature more record highs and fire weather concerns.
In Southern California it will be unseasonably warm and gusterly for most of the week. The Pacific high parked off the west coast is 1032 this morning.
Looking now over to the southwest where this image is showing Northern Arizona along with most of the western conus with cloud cover this morning. SW Arizona south is pretty much cloud free.
Dry conditions with seasonably cool mornings and above average daytime temperatures are expected through the week. Tucson westward should see the lower to mid 70s this week and eastward in the 60s and lower 70s.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like we are in for a strong 3-day blow. Today and tomorrow will see winds 30+ knot NW winds and on Wednesday in the mid 20s. It also looks like we will be have strong NW winds during the night tonight.
Long range, right now, it looks like these strong winds will be gone the weather will be pleasant for the Art Show at El Burro next Sunday.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. In general the winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 26 today, 29 tomorrow and around 23 on Wednesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 29 today, 31 tomorrow and 22 on Wednesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 32-33 today and tomorrow and around 23 on Wednesday.
Puerto Escondido: 27-28 today and tomorrow and around 20 on Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 20 today NW, 20 tomorrow NE then around 16 from the NW on Wednesday.
La Paz: 26 today and tomorrow and around 18 on Wednesday all NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan 25-26 today and tomorrow for the first half then moderate NW winds for the second half for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today 18NE, tomorrow 14NW and Wednesday around 12 from the SE.
The Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties area: mid teens today and tomorrow from the NW and light NW on Wednesday.
South of Cabo Corrienties: light to moderate SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea is pretty much clear of any clouds.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see that a moisture plume has passed over that region during the past 24 hours with a few hot cells that could have been rain producers. Most have move off to the east this morning with the exception of one right over Los Mochas this morning. While there will still be some, what look like, high cloudiness along the coast at least this morning a good portion of the day should see sunshine.
Looking now to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where a brief wind event occurred overnight the winds are now expected to abate to less and 20 by this afternoon.
Monday another Tehuantepecker is due bringing first GALE force winds then STORM force winds by Wednesday in the 50 knot ranges.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where if you watched the Seattle Football game yesterday you would have see copious amount of rain in the stadium. Widespread rain and show showers will continue today in western Washington. Flood Advisories are still posted for many rivers and streams in Washington.
High pressure will build early next week bringing dry weather to the region through the end of the week.
In northern California clouds will clear with high pressure building off the west coast and the latest runs show northern California remaining dry through the end of month. That’s bad news for the snow pack storing water for California.
In southern California there is an upper level low moving east out of the region this morning into northern Arizona and the Great Basin. Gusterly winds can be expected in the wake along with above normal temperatures starting early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect seasonably cool mornings and above average daytime temperatures this week.
There is a trough pushing through the northern part of the state this morning and this image is showing some dense clouds, but no rain is forecast for even as far north as Flagstaff today.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today will be very pleasant wind-wise then what looks like a strong 3-day blow.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. In general the winds will be from the NW.
The northern Sea: 19 today then 27-29 on Monday and Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: very light today then around 29 on Monday and Tuesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: Light NE today then 31-33 on Monday and Tuesday.
Puerto Escondido: moderate SE today then around 28 on Monday and Tuesday from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE today and then around 20 from the NW on Monday and Tuesday.
La Paz: very light NE today then 24-26 on Monday and Tuesday from the NW.
The East Cape: low teens today then 23-25 on Monday and Tuesday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the first half around 19 today then mid teens from the NW on Monday and Tuesday. The second half moderate NE today then moderate NW on Monday and Tuesday.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan light SW today, 14-16 from the NW on Monday and Tuesday.
The Puerto Vallarta to Cabo Corrienties: light NE today then moderate NW for Monday and Tuesday.
South of Cabo Corrienties: mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that moisture plume that traveled down the Sea of Cortez yesterday finally passed over the cape region yesterday afternoon. This morning there are a few lingering, mostly whispys in the region but the rest of the Sea looks to be cloud free.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see that a ragged, scattered band of clouds in moving on shore from around Puerto Vallarta south to Manzanillo this morning. I would expect that they will see periods of cloudiness along with patches of sun in that region today.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec gap winds across the Gulf have diminished to 15 or less in the past 12 hours, however will crank back up to the 20-30 knot ranges this evening and tonight and should last until late tomorrow.
Another cold front is moving into the Gulf of Mexico on Monday that will induce another GALE event that will crank up to STORM force winds of around 50 knots Wednesday night lasting until late Thursday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where I can see a big honk’n 975 low posed off the Washington coast this morning.
It will bring more rain and snow to the Great Northwest today and rain to as far south as San Francisco later today. It is currently raining in Crescent city. The upper Sacramento valley is also expected to see some rain today and end this evening as the front passed into the Great Basin this evening.
In southern California that system moving through the north today will bring cooler weather and breezy winds to the southland today. High pressure will fill in the wake of the departing low and start to warm things back up early next week.
Looking over to the southwest where dry weather is expected across the region for the next week as high pressure settles over the area. That Pacific storm will just brush northern Arizona bringing a few high clouds to the region. This image is showing some high cloudiness over SW Arizona this morning. Temperatures should remain steady throughout the weekend before climbing into the mid and upper 70s by late next week.
That’s what is happening to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today will have winds much like yesterday. A low moving through the Great Basin tomorrow will give cause to one day of mostly light winds in the Sea. Next week, in general, the winds will be in the 20+ knot ranges.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: All NW. Light today, around 20 tomorrow and 27 on Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 21 from the NW today. Very light SE tomorrow and around 30 on Monday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 20 today from the NW, 15 tomorrow NE and 30+ on Monday from the NW.
Puerto Escondido: 18 today from the NE. Around 12 tomorrow from the SE and around 28 on Monday from the NW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Mid teens today from the NW, light SE or possibly NE tomorrow, and around 25 on Monday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the first half around 19 today from the SW, light NE tomorrow and then around 24 on Monday from the SE. The second half mostly moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan mid teens for the next 3 days. Today NW, tomorrow SE, and Monday NW.
The Puerto Vallarta region: very light NE today and tomorrow and around 13 on Monday from the north.
Cabo Corrienties: mid teens from the NE for the 3-day forecast period.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that band of clouds that moved into the northern Sea yesterday morning has been very slow in passing. Instead of passing to the east it has slowly moved down the Sea of Cortez for the past 24 hours and this morning the extremes of the plume are Puerto Escondido to the north and the cape in the south. It continues to slowly move south down the Sea. To the north of Puerto Escondido the skies are clear.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera there is not a cloud along the coast all the way to South America.
In the Gulf to Tehuantepec this morning a fairly weak high in the Gulf of Mexico is forcing fresh northerly winds through the Chivela pass and across the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. The 20-25 knot winds are forecast to diminish to less than 20 by this evening and remain in those ranges through this evening then briefly pop up to 20-30 tomorrow night and then slowly diminish through Sunday night. The models are showing another wind event is possible next Monday night.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where in the Great Northwest flood advisories have been posted for western Washington as a series of storms continue to move through the region. More heavy rain and snow are forecast for tomorrow.
In northern California a system will drop down from the north bringing rain to only as far as the California/Oregon border tomorrow . The system will rapidly move inland and high pressure will rapidly move inland and high pressure will begin to build on Sunday with mostly sunny skies and seasonably mild conditions for Sunday afternoon. The northern state is progged to remain dry for next week.
In southern California cloudiness in the southland will clear today and high pressure will bring warmer and mostly sunny weather today. Tomorrow a fast moving system moving through to the north will bring another round of gusterly winds tomorrow night. Well above normal temperatures are expected next week as high pressure rebuilds in the Great Basin. The LA basin can expect to see Santa Ana wind conditions through tomorrow.
Looking now over to the southwest where chances of any rain have been dropped from the forecasts. Dry weather is expected across the region for the next week and high pressure settles into the area. A series of fast moving systems will brush northern Arizona at times through next week bringing only a few high clouds and afternoon breezes. Temperatures will remain steady through the weekend before climbing into the mid to upper 70s by late next week.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like today and tomorrow will see ballpark 20 knot winds in the central Sea and a tad less in the northern and southern Sea.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: NW winds over the 3-day forecast period with around 18 today, 14 tomorrow and back to around 18 on Sunday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: All NW. 18-23 today and tomorrow and very light winds on Sunday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 21 today and tomorrow from the NW then around 13 on Sunday from the NE.
Puerto Escondido: 18-19 today and tomorrow from the NE then around 12 on Sunday from the SE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. 17 today, 14 tomorrow and around 8 on Sunday from the NE.
La Paz: around 18 today and tomorrow then very light on Sunday all from the NE.
The East Cape: 16-18 today and tomorrow from the NW then around 13 on Sunday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the first half around 19 today and tomorrow and 13 on Sunday all from the NW. The second half light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan light SE today, around 13-14 from the NW over the weekend.
The Puerto Vallarta area: light NE for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light NW today then lighter NE over the weekend.
South of the cape: mostly light SE or SW for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a band of clouds associated with the tail end of a front moving through southern California passing over the northern end of the Sea this morning. I looks like the plume could continue south down the Sea to perhaps the central Sea this morning before passing to the east. We’ll see?
The rest of the Sea is pretty much free of any clouds.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where there are no clouds along the coast to almost South America.
In the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning gale force winds continue in the 35-40 knot ranges this morning. They are forecast to abate to around 20 or less tonight and into tomorrow. The downstream swell generated by this storm has produced a large swell in the 8-10 foot ranges that will continue until late Friday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the storm door is wide open and a series of wet and cold systems will move thorough the Great Northwest for the next several days.
Heavy rain, gusterly winds and snow down to around 2500 feet with a couple feet of new snow for the Cascades by Saturday.
In northern California high pressure off the west coast will keep most of these systems well to the north. However on Saturday a much stronger system is progged slide as far south as the Bay Area but only produce less than a quarter inch of rain as it quickly passes.
This image is showing an inside slider moving into the Great Basin bringing snow to The Salt Lake region this morning. Light snow is also falling in South Lake Tahoe this morning.
In southern California a weak trough of low pressure will pass through the region this morning bringing a period of gusterly north winds through tonight. Warmer and mostly sunny weather will follow tomorrow. Another quick moving trough will move through the region Saturday night resulting in another round of gusterly north winds. Dry conditions and well above normal temperatures are likely early next week.
Looking now over to the southwest where a fast moving rather dry system will be moving through the Great Basin today and tonight that will bring an increase in cloudiness to south central Arizona along with slightly cooler temperatures into Friday. High pressure building in from the west will then bring mostly clear skies and a slow warming trend to the region from Saturday onward into at least the middle of next week.
That’s what is gong on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today the Sea will enjoy another day of light northerlies. Tomorrow the will pick up to around 20, a bit less on Saturday and light winds again on Sunday. Long range looks like strong NW winds Monday into mid next week.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light NE today, 20 tomorrow from the NW and then light again on Saturday from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light NW today then around 21 for the next two day.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light to moderate NE today then 20-22 from the NW on Friday and Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: light SE today then 18-19 from the NE tomorrow and Saturday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light SW today, mid teens tomorrow and Saturday from the NW.
La Paz: light SW today, mid teens tomorrow from the NE and around 20 from the NE on Saturday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan it looks like light to moderate NW winds for the entire passage for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan mid teens from the NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Puerto Vallarta: light NE for the next 3 days.
Cabo Corrienties: light to moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the Sea of Cortez has been pretty much cloud free for the past 24 hours. During the night several bands of fluffys have moved in from the north and passed over the northern Sea. There are still some lingering fluffys as far south as Concepción Bay this morning. It does look like they too will pass to the east and the Sea will see mostly sunshine today.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico where there is not a cloud to be seen for the entire west coast.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the current wind event is winding down. STORM force winds during the night have abated to GALE force this morning and are forecast to diminish during the day to the 20-30 knot ranges by this evening. The resulting swell downstream from the Gulf will be in the 8 foot ranges for the next 24 hours.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where a series of low systems will be moving through the Great Northwest throughout the week bringing heavy rain and mountain snow. The current system extends to the bay area where they are seeing light rain this morning along the coast but inland valleys will remain dry. Portland has heavy rain this morning along with a high wind advisory. Progressively stronger storms are expected to impact the Great Northwest into the weekend.
In northern California only the coast will see any rain, however a stronger system is progged to arrive on Saturday and this could bring some rain to the inland valleys.
In southern California the region will remain dry with just a cooling trend during the week as the systems in the north pass to the east.
Looking now over to the southwest where they can expect dry conditions through early Thursday. A backdoor slider will move into the Great Basin bringing a chance of valley rain and mountain snow through Friday. It looks like the weekend will be dry with a warming trend as high pressure rebuilds over the Great Basin.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence the entire Sea will see two days for light winds and depending on location light southerlies or light northerlies.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light SE for today and tomorrow and around 19 from the NW on Friday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: Light NW today, light SW tomorrow and around 22 on Friday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: light NE today and tomorrow and around 21 on Friday from the NW.
Puerto Escondido is forecast to have light SE today and tomorrow and 19 from the NE on Friday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Light NE today, light SW tomorrow and 13-14 knot NE on Saturday.
The East Cape: around 12 today and Friday from the NE and tomorrow light SE.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the entire stretch: mid teens today from the NW, tomorrow mid teens from the SW and Friday mid teens from the NW again.
For the entire Mexican Riviera: very moderate to light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that high pressure off the west coast of the Baja peninsula has been keeping the Sea of Cortez clear of any clouds for the past 24 hours.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see a weak moisture plume bearing mostly whispys passed over the Manzanillo region last night and is now inland. There are still some clouds off shore that will drift toward the coast but it looks like in general the entire Mexican Riviera will be enjoying sunshine today.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where a STORM force wind event is taking place in the Gulf this morning. Winds to 55 knots are being reported. Seas have built to around 24 feet. The winds are forecast to subside to GALE force by this afternoon and to below GALE force by sometime tomorrow. This Tehuantepecker will generate 8-12 foot swells well downstream from the Gulf through Thursday out to around 114W.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where this image is showing storms moving down from the Aleutians and in from the Pacific into the Great Northwest. High pressure off the west coast is keeping these storms to the north of California and into the Great Northwest. It is currently raining in both Portland and Seattle this morning.
One of these systems will be what they call a back-door slider and slide down from the NW and approach Nevada (by the backdoor) by tomorrow afternoon. Only Crescent City on the California border is forecast to see any rain from this system in California. Another trof will approach the NW on Saturday and could extend as far south as the Bay Area but even if any rain does reach that far it will be very light.
So the forecast for northern California remains bleak for any rain in the upcoming week.
In southern California the pressure gradient between the Nevada plateau and southern California will allow the Santa Ana wind-event to continue especially in the LA Basin and to a lesser extent in the San Diego region. A cooling trend is expected through Thursday as those systems move through to the north. Warmer weather will likely return by the end of the week as high pressure rebuilds over the Great Basin.
Looking now over to the southwest where I can see some high cirrus over SW Arizona this morning and a large band of heavier clouds moving in from the NW. Later in the week, Thursday and Friday, that backdoor slider will move through the Great Basin and into Arizona bringing a chance of some showers across most of central and eastern Arizona along with cooler temperatures. It should warm back up by the weekend as high pressure is progged to rebuild over the Great Basin.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence right now it looks like today will be the last day of these strong winds in the central Sea until this weekend.
So here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: mid teens from the NW today, mid teens from the SE tomorrow and light winds from the SW on Thursday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 20 today from the NW then light NW for the next two days.
The Baja side of the central Sea: a bit less than 20 today from the NW. Then 12-15 from the NW for the next two days.
Puerto Escondido: moderate northerlies today around 15 from the north. Tomorrow light SE and Thursday light SW.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light NE today and tomorrow then around 13 from the west on Thursday.
La Paz: around 14 today from the SW, 10 tomorrow SW and then on Thursday around 15 from the NW.
The East Cape: 17 today NW, 14 tomorrow NW and less than 10 on Thursday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the first half: around 15 from the NW for today and tomorrow then around 10 from the SW on Thursday. The second half mostly light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: mid teens from the NW today and tomorrow light SW on Thursday. The Puerto Vallarta area: light NW for the next 3 days. Cabo Corrienties: light SE today and light NW for the next two. South of Cabo Corrienties: light SE today and then light NW for the next two days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see the moisture plume that has been bringing cloudiness to the Sea for the past two days looks like it is pretty much drying out. The last of the clouds have been passing over the Sea of Cortez all night and it looks like by mid morning they will have passed to the east and the main body of the plume will be over mainland Mexico.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico the remains of the southern end of the plume is still well off shore and continue to blanket the area from just south of Mazatlan to around Manzanillo. All night these clouds have been moving east and it looks like perhaps late this morning they too will have moved off to the east.
Looking further south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where as one Tehuantepecker dies another is on its heels. Tiz his season! Later this morning the next wind event will start in the Gulf with winds increasing to GALE force by this afternoon and further increase to STORM force by this evening. The storm force winds are expected to last for about a half a day with seas building to around 25 feet. The GALE conditions should last through Wednesday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where Washington and Oregon will be the only place on the west coast to see any rain today or for that matter the rest of the week.
The short wave systems that have been progged to either go over or under the Pacific high that has been parked off the west coast for about a month will probably do that, but not much will come of it. This morning’s models are showing the high to maintain its strength giving cause to more mild, dry weather for California this week.
Strong high pressure in the 1040 ranges blanket the Great Basin. With this strong pressure in the Nevada plateau and around 1020 in southern California this sets up a Santa Ana wind event for the LA basin and to a lesser extent the San Diego area.
It will remain seasonally warm, 7dry and gusterly in Southern California with a slight cooling trend later in the week when those lows pass through northern California.
Looking over to the southwest where they will be seeing seasonally warm days into the middle of the week. They are still forecasting a weak system to move into the region on Thursday and Friday bringing gusterly winds, cooler temperatures and a chance of some valley rain and mountain snow.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence strong NW winds in the 25-29 knot ranges will be in the northern and central Sea today. Tomorrow mid to high teens and then on Wednesday the entire Sea should be seeing light winds into next weekend.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 27 today NW. 12 tomorrow NE and about the same on Tuesday from the east.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: All NW. Today 28, tomorrow 20 and then on Wednesday less than 10.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 29 today NW, 17 tomorrow NW and then less than 10 from the NE on Wednesday.
Puerto Escondido: around 26 today NW, then 10-11 knots from the NE on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands.
All from the NE. today around 18, tomorrow 12 and Wednesday around 9.
La Paz: 23 today NW, 14 tomorrow NW, and around 12 on Wednesday from the NE.
The East Cape: around 22 today from the NW then around 15 from the NW on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the first half: around 23 today NW then ballpark 15 from the NW on Tuesday and Wednesday. The second half light to moderate NW winds in the mid to low teens for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today around 17 from the NW. tomorrow 11 from the south and on Wednesday 11 from the NW.
The Puerto Vallarta region: light NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties: light NW today, light SW tomorrow and light NW again on Wednesday.
South of the cape light winds with a southern flavor for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that this moisture plume that originates around 10N 120W continue to send a broad band of moisture laden clouds toward the Baja peninsula this morning.
This morning the plume extends from the far northern Sea to around Cabo Corrienties. The satellite images are showing that most of the clouds are high whispys mixed with a few mid level fluffys. The images are also showing some showers in the mix off shore, but not over the Sea of Riviera this morning.
It looks like these conditions will be with us at least another 24 hours.
Looking south to the Gulf of Tehuantepec where STORM warnings have been posted by the National Hurricane Center starting tomorrow morning. The STORM force winds will persist through early Tuesday with seas building to around 23 feet downstream. GALE conditions will last through late Wednesday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where at the top of this image where the Great Northwest will enjoy another sunny day then the rest of the weak several systems will bring more rain and mountain snow to the region.
In northern California all the talk is about the lows off the west coast that will be attacking the high that has been out there for over a month. There are several lows progged to move into northern California this week but the latest computer runs say no rain to speak of. Perhaps a 10th of an inch from one of the systems later in the week, but it looks like California will continue to remain dry next week.
That’s the bad news, the good news is that these relatively weak systems will significantly weaken the high and that should open the door for more systems to move into northern California.
In southern California it will be warm and dry and foggy along the coast in the mornings. There is a slight chance they could see some light rain Thursday as one of those systems moves through to the north.
Looking now over to the southwest where wind advisories have been posted for Laughlin, Bullhead City and Needles this morning. Gust to 45 mph are being forecast.
For the Tucson area high pressure will bring dry conditions and mild daytime temperatures into the middle of the week. A system is forecast to drop down from the Great Northwest into the Great Basin Thursday and Friday bringing a chance of some valley rain and mountain snow.

That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the
Fence it looks like we will be having a couple of days of relatively strong winds in the northern and central Sea then Tuesday through the end of the week, right now, it look like a return to the moderate winds. Don’t chisel that in stone yet for late next week, we should have a better picture tomorrow though.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. All winds from the NW.
The northern Sea: 26-27 today and tomorrow and around 12 on Tuesday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 23 today, 28 tomorrow and 19 on Tuesday.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 22 today, 30 tomorrow and 18 on Tuesday.
Puerto Escondido: 18 today, 26 tomorrow and around 14 on Tuesday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Light to moderate NE winds for the 3-day forecast period.
La Paz: 14 today from the NE. 22 tomorrow from the NW and around 13 on Tuesday from the NW.
The East Cape: mostly light NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan to half way: mid teens today, around 23 tomorrow and back to around 16 on Tuesday. The second half light to moderate NW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan today and tomorrow moderate NW and light SW on Tuesday. The Puerto Vallarta area: mostly light NW for the next 3 days. Cabo Corrienties: moderate NW today and tomorrow and light SW on Tuesday. Manzanillo south mostly light SW winds for the next 3 days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see a large area of disturbed weather that has been off to the west of the Baja peninsula for several days has started to move east overnight and this morning most of the northern Sea has cloud cover and the plume is spreading to the south so I’d expect the entire peninsula to have cloud cover by later this morning.
Within this plume there are areas of high topped cells that could be rain producers. We’ll see?
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico it looks like they will see some high whispys along the coast today, but all in all it should be a good solar day for the Mexican Riviera.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec cool dense air continues to funnel through the Chivela pass from the Gulf of Mexico and into the Gulf to Tehuantepec. Gale force winds are expected to continue this morning and gradually diminish below gale force later today.
Another Tehuantepecker is due in the Gulf on Monday morning with 45-50 knot STORM force winds.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where the Great Northwest should see a sunny weekend then a series of storms will bring more rain and snow starting early next week.
In northern California over the next several days a couple of rather weak lows will take aim on that high that has been parked in the Pacific for over a month. Monday the first will weaken the high slightly as it passes over the high bringing just a slight chance of some rain in extreme northern California. Later in the week another is progged to arrive in northern California and each run of the models is showing a diminishing chance of the north state getting wet from this system.
In southern California they will continue to have dense overnight and morning fog along with warm days. Next week they should see a slight cooling trend at the lows pass to the north. The forecast is for only a very slight chance of any rain to the southland.
Looking now over to the southwest where dry conditions and above normal temperatures will continue through the middle of next week. Then later in the week there looks like a system moving down from the NW into the Great Basin will bring a chance of valley rain and mountain snow to the Tucson area. Maybe, perhaps?
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence we have good news and bad news.
First the good news. We will have a very pleasant day wind-wise in the Sea today. In general light southerlies.
The bad news: Don’t get used to it. These pleasant southerlies will only last one day then tomorrow and Monday the winds will be from the NW and strong. Good news: Long range has next Tuesday through the end of the week light to moderate Northerlies.
A little more bad news. The past two weeks of sunshine for the entire peninsula will end today with low pressure over the Sea drawing in those moisture laden clouds off the west coast to pass over the peninsula. We should see a good mix of fluffys passing over the entire Sea by later this morning.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: light today from the SE and around 25 from the NW on Sunday and Monday.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: light SE today. Tomorrow 22 NW and Monday 27 NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea: 14 today SE. tomorrow 23 NW and Monday around 29 from the NW. A bit less each day at Puerto Escondido.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. Very light today from the NW, around 11 tomorrow from the NE and on Monday around 17 from the NE again.
La Paz: Very light today from the NW, around 11 tomorrow from the NE and Monday 21 from the NW.
East Cape: light northerlies today and tomorrow and around 21 on Monday from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan to around half way all from the NW. Today around 10, tomorrow 15 and Monday 20. The second half moderate NW for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan around 10 from the north for the next 3 days. The Puerto Vallarta area about the same a bit higher on Monday.
Cabo Corrienties: light to moderate northerlies over the 3-day forecast period. Manzanillo light NW and Zihuatanejo light SW for the next three days.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies remain clear over the Sea of Cortez this morning.
Looking south to the west coast of Mexico I can see some storm activity to the east of Puerto Vallarta but along the coast it looks like the coast is clear this morning.
Further south, as advertized there is a Tehuantepecker brewing in the Gulf of Tehuantepec this morning. STORM force wind are expected to last into the afternoon then GALE force winds are forecast to last into Saturday.
Seas will build to around 22 feet and a large swell ranging from 8-10 feet will extend downstream out to around 110 by late Saturday before diminishing below 8 feet by Monday.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now to the north to the west coast of America where that blocking high remains off the west coast scooting the storms to the north and into the Great Northwest.
A cold front is forecast to stretch from southern Oregon east into Montana today ushering in wet weather across parts of Oregon and Washington and snow in the Cascades. It is currently raining in Portland.
For California it will remain dry for the remainder to the week. Next week could see a change in the weather pattern if medium range models verify. At the very least cooler temperatures are anticipated as a short wave trough begins to push into northern California from the NW weakening the ridge. The first trough is progged to move across northern California late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Rain from this system will probably just brush northern California, however the second system slated for late Wednesday into Thursday could bring light rain to more of northern California.
Southern California is having pea-soup fog along the coast each night and morning and it should last into Sunday. Otherwise the high pressure will continue to bring warm weather thought early next week. There is a slight chance of some rain next Thursday as that trough moves through the north state.
Looking now over to the southwest where the high over the region will weaken this weekend as a system passes to the north on Saturday. The ridge will reset itself Monday. This image is showing the entire state to be clear this morning.
That is what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence today most of the Sea will see very moderate winds from the NW today. Tomorrow light of moderate SE and then on Sunday the strong NW winds crank back up. Long range has mid next week being very pleasant wind-wise perhaps even with a southern flavor.
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 10 today NW, 10 tomorrow SE and around 20 on Sunday from the NW.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: around 16 today from the NW, less than to tomorrow SE then close to 23 on Sunday from the NW.
The Baja side of the central Sea including Puerto Escondido: 13 today NW, 13 tomorrow SE and then around 23 on Sunday.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, and the nearby islands. NE for the 3-day forecast period. today 10, tomorrow 5 and Sunday 13.
La Paz: 10 today NE, tomorrow 7 NW and Sunday around 15 from the NW.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan for the first half around 10 today and tomorrow and around 21 on Sunday all from the NW. The second half less than 10 for the 3-day forecast period.
Mexican Riviera: light southerlies in Mazatlan today, light NW tomorrow and around 14 on Sunday from the NW.
The Puerto Vallarta area: light NE today and tomorrow and light NW on Sunday.
Cabo Corrienties: mostly light NW over the 3-day forecast period.
South of the cape mostly light NW over the next 3 days. Zihuatanejo and south will have a southern flavor.

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that again the Sea of Cortez is pretty much free of any clouds. The exception is I can see some fluffys wandering around in the southern crossing this morning.
Looking south that nasty moisture plume that has been off the west coast of Mexico for the past week looks like it has dried up with the last of the plume passing over the Mexican Riviera during the night.
It looks like sunshine will be the order of the day for the entire length of the Mexican Riviera today.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec STORM warnings will be posted for the Gulf starting tomorrow night. A strong cold front will sweep through the Gulf of Mexico. High pressure behind the front will produce a tight gradient between the east and west coast and funnel cold air through the Chivela pass into the Gulf. The STORM force winds will last through Friday morning then GALE force winds will continue through Saturday morning. Seas to 22 feet can be expected in the Gulf with a large swell spreading downstream with seas reaching 8 feet near 110W.
That’s what is going in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where not much has changed for the past week and it looks like the next week will be about the same.
The Great Northwest continues to have wet storm after another come through giving the Cascades a nice snow pack.
To give you an idea of the snow pack on the west coast. Whistle Mountain in Vancouver has a 73 inch snow pack. Squaw Valley has 22 inches and Bear Valley in southern California has 10 inches of mostly man made snow. At least half of the runs in the California ski resorts are still closed.
The computer models are finally offering some hope for next week as the ridge of high pressure off the west coast starts to break down allowing for systems to begin to impact first the Great Northwest and eventually down into California. The models are showing a wet January but the first weather to reach California will not have a lot of moisture in it. Less than a 10th of an inch but it could signal the start of the main storm track returning to California. We’ll see?
Not much in the way of any changes in the weather in southern California. The seasonally warm days continue.
Looking over to the southwest where dry and seasonably warm conditions will continue through the weekend. Generally light winds and periods of whispys can be expected over the next several days.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence it looks like tomorrow and Saturday the northern and central Sea will see pleasant light to moderate winds. Sunday the winds are expected to crank back up again and long range has Tuesday through the end of next week seeing light to moderate southerlies. Well we’ll see?
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period.
The northern Sea: 19 NW today, less than 10 tomorrow from the NW and less than 10 on Saturday from the SE.
The Guaymas side of the central Sea: 21 today NW. 14 tomorrow from the NW and Saturday very light winds from the SE.
The Baja side of the central Sea: around 19 NW today and then light NE Friday and Saturday.
Puerto Escondido: 16 today from the NE then less than 10 Friday and Saturday from the NE.
The southern Sea, the San Lorenzo Channel, La Paz and the nearby islands. Around 19 today NE, then around 10 from the NE on Friday and Saturday.
La Paz: Moderate NE today, light SE tomorrow and then light westerlies on Saturday.
The East Cape: around 15 today NW then less than 10 from the NE on Friday and Saturday.
The Sonoran passage south from Guaymas to Mazatlan to half way: 18-20 today NW then 10-12 from the NW for Friday and Saturday. The second half could see some light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.
The Mexican Riviera: Mazatlan moderate NW today, light NW tomorrow and back to around 14 from the NW on Saturday.
Puerto Vallarta: 7-10 from the north for the 3-day forecast period.
Cabo Corrienties mostly light NW winds for the next 3 days.
South of the cape mostly light SW winds for the 3-day forecast period.

Wednesday, January 01, 2014 NEW YEARS DAY

Voice to Text

Looking down into the Sea this morning I can see that the skies remain clear over the Sea of Cortez again this morning.
Looking south to the Mexican Riviera I can see that moisture plume continues to be active and sending ragged, scattered band of wet clouds toward the west coast of Mexico.
From around Puerto Vallarta south to Manzanillo they have been having periods of light rain for the past 24 hour with rain accumulations of about a quarter of an inch.
Further south in the Gulf of Tehuantepec the current wind event will be winding down today. Later today the 30 knot winds will diminish to just below gale force. Looking ahead another strong cold front is progged to sweep through the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday bringing another rough of gales to the Gulf of Tehuantepec lasting into the weekend.
That’s what is going on in our hood. Looking now north to the west coast of America where high pressure off the west coast continues to divert all wet weather to the north.
The Great Northwest will remain dry today but tomorrow another round of storms will arrive bringing rain to the low lands and more snow to the Cascades.
In northern California it will remain cool and dry into mid week when a low out in the Pacific is progged to pass over the high and move into northern California. Most of the model runs show little or no rain from this system. Confidence is too low to keep the forecast anything but dry through the next seven days. Temperatures in the inland valleys will have lows around 32 and daytime highs around 66 all week.
In southern California it will be a tad warmer with lows around 50 and daytime highs close to 70. That low moving through the north state later in the week will most likely bring some high cloudiness to the southland but other wise clear skies.
Looking over to the southwest where dry and seasonable warm days will continue through the weekend. Generally light winds and periods of high whispys can be expected over the next several days.
That’s what is going on to the north of us. Back on this side of the Fence right now it looks like the central Sea will be seeing winds around 20 for today and tomorrow then Friday into the weekend the models are showing light to moderate winds. YIPEE!
Here are the wind details for the 3-day forecast period. In general all winds will be from the NW.
